Sonoma Coast Wine

 

The Sonoma Coast AVA is an extensive part of Sonoma County, California. It stretches between San Pablo Bay to Mendocino along the Pacific coast, east to the coastal ranges. The climate created by such close proximity to the Pacific Ocean is that of heavy rainfall, cool winds and heavy fog. Most of the vineyards are planted into the ridges, keeping them as far above the fogline as possible as well as maximizing their sun exposure. 
 
There are certain varietals that respond well to such conditions, particularly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but the region is also known for its Rieslings and Syrah. 
 
The Fort Ross AVA is included within the Sonoma Coast.

  • Limerick Lane 1910 Block Zinfandel 2014

    Snoothrank:

    An eminently likeable wine. Red berry and stone fruit on entry. Then some serious tannin jumps in. However, the fruit still lingers a bit. Very good acid content really helps this one become a winner. I think this might be a wine that will grow in complexity with several more years of aging. Read More

  • Frank Dusak Viognier 2015

    Snoothrank:

    A recent Naked Wines selection and a good one at that. Pale and clear silver gold in the glass. Opens with a yeasty peach blossom; then lime and kumquat, then a bit of bruised grass blade and lime zest. Medium body and medium acidity. Finishes nicely with most of the opening aromas carrying over to the palate becoming more and more smooth as it ... Read More

  • Enkidu Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Very much and herbal/grassy nose. Interesting combination of herbalness and stone fruit is my initial tongue sensation. Then, there is a lemon pith sensation. The lemon sensation seems to linger a bit giving good refreshment. After a few minutes of air, stone fruit sensations seem more emergent. Read More

  • Enkidu 'E' Old Vine Zinfandel 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Nose of berries and some dustiness. Red fruit and dustiness on the tip of the tongue. Nice acid tartness. Sturdy tannins. Somewhat unusual finish: a suggestion of caramel and, interestingly, a lingering tingling sensation on the tongue. Read More
